KidLitCon Edition

This past weekend, we had the privilege of attending KidLitCon 2011 in Seattle, and we had the best time ever! Every good thing you've ever heard about this conference? It's ALL TRUE. KidLitCon is a wonderful venue for authors, bloggers, librarians, teachers, and readers to come together and share a mutual love of children's and young adult literature.

Plus, we got to meet Scott Westerfeld!

And, okay... maybe it's silly to post this picture, because he isn't actually on the special KidLitCon edition podcast we're offering for your listening pleasure, but hey... if you had a picture with Scott Westerfeld, wouldn't YOU post it?

Thought so!

Mr. Westerfeld was extremely nice and we hope to feature him on the podcast sometime in the future. While at the conference, we presented on podcasting and adding a voice element to blogs. It was so much fun! As part of our presentation, we recorded book recommendations from the authors and bloggers at the presentation. We got some great ones and are so excited to share them with you! So here you go, the extra special Authors are ROCKSTARS! - KidLitCon edition!

September Podcast: Sophie Jordan

This month, we had the honor of interviewing Sophie Jordan, New York Times bestselling author of the incredible Firelight series. She chatted with us over Skype about writing romance, fond memories of Sweet Valley High, and what we can expect from Vanish, the highly anticipated sequel to Firelight. We hope you'll love this interview just as much as we loved talking to Sophie! She is fantastic.

Also in this month's episode, we present our book picks of the month-- this time, it's Pregnant Pause, by Han Nolan, and Ashes, by Ilsa J. Bick.
